Jackie Burroughs is Dead (and what are you going to do about it?)
Artistic Associate Danielle Baskerville has engaged independently an initiative in artistic producing and commissioning of new work. Her most recent commission with long time collaborator DA Hoskins will be part of the DanceWorks 2015/16 season.
Created by director/choreographer DA Hoskins and featuring dance artists Danielle Baskerville, Luke Garwood and Robert Kingsbury, this world premiere focuses on how energy reverberates and grows through exchange. On September 22, 2010, days before initial rehearsals, the Canadian stage and film actress Jackie Burroughs passed away. Her death steered the course of this work as an exploration of the power of reaction — how we observe, absorb and ultimately respond. In Jackie Burroughs is Dead (and what are you going to do about it?) there is an echo forever permeating the present and speaking of the residuals of loss.
